Sponne School PFA
Sponne School PFA exists to raise funds for the school to purchase items for the direct benefit of students. The Committee is made up of a mix of parents and school staff which helps to ensure good communication between fund raising activities and funding requests. The School Council are also involved in helping decide what the students need in terms of projects and equipment. It’s a great way of getting more involved in school life and getting to know people!
Our next meeting date will be Monday 6th November at 7pm in the LRC. All welcome!
For our events we need helpers and raffle prizes – if you could offer help please let us know by email, or drop any prizes into Admin. All support is much appreciated – ask to join our email helpers list to get email reminders of events and what you can do to support us.
